Netflix debuted over 1,000 hours of original content in 2017. It spent around $6 billion on original content for 2017 and has already announced it will spend $8 billion in original content this year.
Here’s my Top 5 Netflix shows that I just can’t get enough of right now! Although I’m the worlds biggest book person, I still love to sit down and watch some TV. Usually Myself and my husband like to watch certain shows together. Which is a great way to set up time to spend with each other. On of the most surprising shows for me was The Crown. We watched season 1 & 2 over the Christmas holidays and I was blown away. I couldn’t believe how much I enjoyed it! The amount of googling we did while watching this show was funny! Mindhunter was another big favourite with both of us.
